updated and modified records

Updated and Modified Records

SQL Server Transaction is one of the most crucial components of every SQL Server database. It helps to maintain the transactions and record any or all changes in database made by each transaction. However, in case of system failure the transaction log might get damaged. This creates a big challenge for an investigator that how to recover the damaged transactional log in a way to get all the evidence of modified and updated entries in the records.

rsecords deletion

Records Deletion

Occasionally users have abundant of databases in their SQL Server. However, while handling their database sometimes by their records are deleted that creates a big challenge for an investigator to examine the record deletion.

corruption of database

Corruption of Database

MS SQL Server database is one of the advance relational database management systems that are generally used by organizations and professionals. Its enhanced user-interface and features of the MS SQL Server sorts it a beneficial database application for large amount of data management. Though, the effectiveness of this application, the database created by it are prone to corruption of data that results in data inaccessibility.

Process of Database Forensics

  • Evaluation : The stage of evaluation covers up the stage examining over the version of database, extension of database, size, as well as storage of database. Once we know all these details then, only we can move to another step to carve out the evidence from it.
  • Acquisition : Once we get the complete details of the database. Then, we create complete hard disk image copy of the database to find the related database.
  • Analysis and Recovery:After creating the image copy, we will export the relevant file from the image file. If there is any database file that is corrupted then, we will recover and repair the corrupted as well as damaged database file.
  • Being a fact, transactions are extremely vital for the corresponding database, because if needed they can be used for recreating the entire database in case of catastrophic conditions. Reading transaction logs is not that easy without the involvement of an external application as SQL Server is not in a practice of storing this particular set of information in a human readable form. However, it is not completely impossible to do so, as there are undocumented functions such as; fn_dblog() and more that enables a user to read transactions from a log file.
  • Although there is a way to read transactions of a log file by using undocumented functions mentioned above, but the implementation is way too lengthy to be applied every time a log file needs to be analyzed especially when it’s a matter of a few transactions executed on the DB. In addition, the function only enables access to the transaction log but does not decode it for the users therefore; usage of a commercial tool becomes necessary for examining the transactions or rebuilding database out of it, if needed.
  • Report: After doing the complete investigation and getting the relevant evidence from it. We provide you with the complete report, which is written in plain English. As we understand the concern of our users more than anything else. Reports make easy for the one to understand what we did and what we get as a result out of it.
